“Do you really think you can build this business?”
That’s what someone asked David Ridley during the early stages of his startup real estate investment firm.
Well, David was able to build the business. The firm he founded and lead as CEO, Invesco Real Estate, grew to over $65 billion in assets under management with 20 offices scattered around the world.
